Preserve complex fire scenes in 3D with our high definition laser scanning technology.
Leica’s 3D laser scanning technology provides complex fire scene preservation in 3D, with easy extraction of dimensional data that can be documented and saved forever.
Investigators can work remotely remaining at a safe distance whilst capturing highly accurate measurements of the scene, whilst at the same time protecting the site from evidence contamination. In many instances, fire patterns can be documented and correlated to origin and cause. With 3D point cloud processing software, millions of data points are transformed into a usable 3D virtual model of the scene, exactly as it was at the time of capture. Unlike hand-drawn diagrams, laser scan data enables investigators to thoroughly explore and analyse the scene, even after the physical evidence has been demolished.
Computer programs can even integrate the scan data directly into fire models and FDS software for analysis and hypothesis testing. Daubert tested and jury-friendly, the Leica ScanStation is a proven tool for cost recovery.
Leica 3D scanning technology aids investigators to determine how fire fighters were injured.
Officer Grant Greenwalt of the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department describes how the ScanStation aided investigators as they determined how several fire fighters were injured at a residential structure fire.
